Hundreds of people celebrated as the Olympic flame finished a tour around Sochi.
UN chief Ban Ki-moon was one of the torchbearers along with International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach.
The Olympic torch arrived following the longest journey in the history of the games.
The 40,000-mile route took the torch to the North Pole atop Europe's highest mountain, Mount Elbrus, and even went unlit into space. – ANC Dateline Philippines, February 7, 2014
